Nanny’s No Bake Coconut Cream Pie

Coconut is one of my favorite flavors and I’ve been severely deprived lately. That changed over the 4th of July week though when I made this delicious pie. I didn’t pay attention and made too much filling … Oops! This recipe should be just enough for an 8 or 9-inch pie though.

I have been ‘cheating’ and using the store-bought pie crusts from the dairy section but nobody has complained yet. You could also use a graham cracker crust or one of the vanilla crumb crusts I’ve seen at some stores.  Continue reading “Nanny’s No Bake Coconut Cream Pie”

German Chocolate Pie

I love chocolate in almost any way shape or form and German Chocolate Cake is one of my favorites. A few years ago a friend of mine passed along a recipe for German Chocolate Pie and I was in love. I tweaked the original recipe a little and this is what I came up with.

German Chocolate Pie

Ingredients:

  • 2 T. cocoa
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 c. pecans, chopped
  • 1/2 c. coconut, flaked
  • 2/3 c. evaporated milk
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 3 T. butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 pie shell, unbaked

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325.

Line a pie plate with the pie shell. Set to the side.

Mix remaining ingredients together.

Pour into the pie shell.

Bake for 45 – 50 minutes.
